"Cave Girl is maybe part of the B-Movie genre, but it is the most hilarious film yet. The main character is Rex who is a high school nerd and gets bullied by the jocks and valley girls. On a field trip to a Southern California cavern, Rex gets lost and finds a set of glowing crystals that sends him back to Pre-Historic times. There, he meets a beautiful Neanderthal woman named Iba and shows him the ways of the cave people. There's a lot of generic 1980's teen movie formulas like the full-figured cavewoman showing Rex her breasts, the cavemen discovering how to give the middle finger, and
Iba bathing in the nude much to Rex's delight. This movie is for anyone who is a fan of those classic 1980's teen/sex/nude women/nerd-becomes-hero comedies."
Dumb, yes, but still fun.

"High school student Rex is a nerd and is on the bottom rung of the pecking order. The other young people his age are merciless in their taunting. They make the bullies in CARRIE look nice. At one point early on in the film a guy scrapes off the "WO" in the sign on the girl's locker room that reads,"WOMEN ONLY", so that when Rex sees it he thinks it's the men's locker room and goes in. (Yes, this film does have it's fair share of full-frontal nudity.)
Then one day his class goes on a feild trip to a cave out in the desert. Rex gets seperated from the group and wanders over to an area where there are some strange crystals. Then some nearby explosions that are the result of some army test experiments cause a strange reaction that cause Rex to be transported back to prehistoric times. There he meets Eba, a beatiful cave girl. Because this is before people became concerned about things like style and social grace, Eba dosen't mind at all about Rex's geekiness.
Needless to say, this is not the thinking man's movie. Certain problems would come from a guy from our time going back and screwing with history, but the film isn't concerned with this. This is a movie you just have to not spend too much time thinking about, just sit back, relax and enjoy. If you like movies like TOMMY BOY, REVENGE OF THE NERDS and BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, give this one a try."
"A new word: I love you"

"According to fans of the Internet Movie Data Base, "Cave Girl" rates only a 2.8 (on a scale of 1-10). Fortunately there's no reason in the world to trust the wits of IMDB. For little more than the price of a video rental, one can own "Cave Girl," hence leisurely arrive at one's own judgment.
In my honest opinion, "Cave Girl" is delightful--a real gem of romantic comedy. The storyline concerns a bright but nerdy high school kid named Rex, who is despised by the girls and harrassed by the regular (dimwit) guys. While on a school field trip to ancient cave dwellings Rex accidentally enters a time-warp that transports him back to the Stone Age. There (or then) he becomes not only an object of interest, but eventually a hero to the primitive tribe he encounters. He also finds love in the form of the gorgeous cave girl Eba. Much of the film follows Rex's attempts to seduce this dream-girl dressed in a fur bikini. These would-be seduction scenes, which involve strange makeshift beds and shelters, are classic comedy. In fact, the entire film may be characterized as "classic" inasmuch as its entertainment value holds up under repeated viewings!
Every element of "Cave Girl" seems to coalesce into a whole which is very pleasant. The bouncy background music certainly helps; the movie's wild, sometimes Edenic landscapes are also an asset. But most impressive is the chemistry between the principal characters Rex and Eba. Daniel Roebuck's portrayal of the bookish hero is truly inspired. In his overgrown cub-scout appearance as well as in his lecherous pursuit of Eba, he is downright hilarious; yet he conveys a truly human, even a humane quality that never loses a viewer's sympathy. For the better part of the film he performs a comic romp with Eba which is simply a joy to behold.
In the role of the cave girl, Cindy Ann Thompson is so refreshing--with a wholesome beauty that recalls Daryl Hannah in "Clan Of The Cave Bear" (which also premiered in 1985). While no actress can match the flawless looks of Daryl as Ayla, Cindy's Eba is equally magnetic--her vivaciousness, good humor and playfulness combining into one irresistible charm! Who could blame Rex for pursuing her so doggedly?
Though all the scenes that Rex and Eba share have an undeniable magic, two are standouts. In the first, Rex tries teaching English to Eba by touching, then naming various parts of her body. When his misguided instruction becomes too "personal" Eba responds with a stunning right hook to Rex's jaw! Later, when Eba finally gives in to Rex's wooing, it is a remarkably tender, gentle scene. In brief, while Eba is literally a knockout, she's not a mere sex toy/basic pleasure model. More than likable, Eba deserves love. Likewise the film as a whole seems pretty lovable--which may be the highest compliment one can give any movie."
Light-hearted fun with romantic flair

""Cave Girl" is a funny, silly romp through prehistoric times. The hero is a bumbling, bookish college student who's a total washout with women and an easy target for the classroom bullies. All that changes when he's mysteriously transported back through time and meets a stunningly beautiful cave girl. The film's best moments result from the hero's clumsy efforts at seduction, and the reactions of the cave girl's tribe to the modern products that he carries in his seemingly bottomless backpack. "Cave Girl" is endearingly goofy, and the film editing is exceptionally good."
